Tom Hanks may turn American Idiot into a movie

Reports are surfacing that Playtone, the production company run by Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman, are in talks to turn the Broadway musical based on Green Day’s American Idiot into a feature film.

The musical, which follows a group of small-town friends–characters from the band’s 2004 Grammy-winning full-length–opens on Broadway on April 20. Playtone also turned the ABBA-based musical, Mamma Mia, into a hugely successful film in 2008.
